Mike signs EDM 413 - Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919

Mike Gapes MP (Labour, Ilford South) has signed Early Day Motion (EDM) 413 on the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919.

The EDM reads: “That this House recognises the importance of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919 for its importance as a turning point in the history of the Raj and British Empire in India; notes that the centenary of this event is approaching and that it is appropriate to commemorate it; further recognises that former Prime Minister, David Cameron, referred to the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre as a deeply shameful act; further notes that this event does not represent modern British values; urges the Government to ensure that British children are taught about this shameful period and that modern British values welcome the right to peaceful protest; and further urges the Government formally to apologise in the House and inaugurate a memorial day to commemorate this event.”
